please i hope that someone could help me. i am pleased to read all of the supportive advice given to eachother. ok i had a "sinus infection" last year were the whole right side of my face hurt. also with the post nasal drip. i had the lump sensation in my throat too. i was prescribed antibiotic for the sinus, and nexium, but now on prilosec (nexium too expensive). i am still having problems and its been over a year now! like a pain on the right side of my throat(by "adams apple") i dont have a sore throat though. i have not been taking the prilosec because i do not want to get in the routine of taking meds. i feel once you start with one, then you'll end up on four. anyway its the pain, and the clearing of the throat. my doc said gerd, but i did not read symptoms of pain in the throat on the message board from anyone with gerd. i think its gerd, but could it be something else too? i had a cbc blood test done, and that was ok. could someone please help me, and let me know what to do to get rid of this whole thing. gerd, pain in the throat? it is very frustrating and hard for me to focus on life sometimes from so much worry.
